Something you can actually do about the climate change crisis. Instead of buying a tree with clipped roots to put in your house for Xmas and then throw away, buy one with full roots to plant it somewhere on your property or in some other protected location. If you do that for 30 years, you will extract a lot of carbon from the atmosphere, and will have done something about the problem, instead of just talking about it. Talk is cheap.
Make planting one tree — not destroying one — the new Xmas tradition.
In St. Pete, they put a protective barrier around banyan trees to protect them. I must say they are something primordial and immense. Never seen anything quite like them.
First time for me seeing a Banyan tree — a huge one.
Trees and sea algae provide most of the oxygen in the atmosphere. Without them, humans wouldn’t exist. Yet they are cutting down the rain forests willy nilly. Wise?
I wish I knew the different trees. I know the Weeping Willow and the Red Maple and the Pine and the Douglas Fir. But there are so many more I don’t know.
